California Workforce Legislation and Policy

CWA is on the forefront of tracking legislation and policy in California, and this is the depository where you can find all legislation and state directives around workforce development, with analysis and public comment on those items where applicable.

CWA Sponsored Legislation

AB 1111 Removing Barriers to Employment Act
Primary Sponsor: Assemblymember Eduardo Garcia (D)

Between current openings and baby boomer retirements, California businesses expect to have 4.4 million middle skill job openings in the next decade. Where is California going to find the talent to fill the need?

AB 1111 suggests that the talent is waiting right here in our own backyard, waiting to be tapped. Disconnected populations and populations with barriers to employment comprise a large amount of California’s potential workforce. It is not just a social imperative that we help these people enter into the skilled workforce, but an economic imperative as well.

This bill would develop a grant program that Workforce Boards and Community-Based Organizations would join forces to apply for. The object? To break barriers to gainful employment and help fill business needs. See our infographic to the right for more information.
